There is still time to
sign up for some academic and athletic camps at The University of Texas at
Arlington this summer.
For the first time, in
2012 the University has added Fitness Adventures 101 to its summer camp
lineup. The new day camp for ages 6-12 will combine interactive instruction
with high-energy fitness activities to enhance campers’ knowledge of health,
wellness and nutrition.
“Fitness Adventures 101
will provide kids the opportunity to sample a variety of fitness activities,”
said Christopher Ray, director of UT Arlington’s Center of Healthy Living and
Longevity and an assistant professor of kinesiology.
“It is essential that
kids are exposed to diverse activities in order to identify the type of
exercise they most enjoy, as enjoyment plays a critical role in one's ability
to maintain a fitness regime across the lifespan.”
To see a complete schedule of summer camps,
including athletics, band and cheerleading,
